Arthur Schopenhauer’s will defined the ego. Representation is Individuation and an agitating möbius between objectivity and subjectivity. A thrownness into Being and Consciousness. Breaking these circles of phenomena doesn’t necessarily mean transcendence. The capacity to remain in a state of imagination is saying to yourself, as Schopenhauer represents, I want some of that! This is a fallacy of thought that I refer to as the Envy fallacy, an illegal left turn of thought, a failure to communicate from the outside in. To be clear, envy is a function of cognition for the eclectic repurposing of a concept to the dead-end of solipsism, take your pick. Make it new again? Ezra Pound was a proponent and pioneer of this presupposition. Compounded with compatibilism, there is a freedom within the ego. A counterpoint cadence of forward chronology within the time and space we all habituate.
